Why Olivia Wilde Doesn't Tweeze Her Brows

When Olivia Wilde gets home from a shoot, her top priority is washing her face. “I usually wash [it] twice. First, to remove all the makeup, and then again to really give my face a good scrub,” she tells the New York Times’s T Magazine. “I like to get it clean at the end of a workday using a good hot towel.”

To maintain a clear complexion, Wilde often goes without makeup — “In order to give my skin a rest,” she explains — and indulges in an occasional facial. She also swears by Cetaphil cleanser and moisturizer.

But when she is going glam, the Revlon spokeswoman starts with the brand’s Colorstay or PhotoReady Foundation, “with a little moisturizer for a light look,” she shares. Another must? “I’ve been using the new Revlon Lip Butters on my lips,” she reveals. “They’re so moisturizing.”

One surprising beauty fact: the actress doesn’t tweeze her eyebrows. “I’ve been letting them grow in for years,” she says. “I try to fill them in wherever nature has abandoned me. I just fill in under the arch and soften them up a bit.”

And with her hair lighter these days — “I am really enjoying being a blonde,” she shares — she also goes for a brighter brow color. “My natural brows are quite pointy,” she reveals. “I soften them so I look less like some evil Disney queen!” Tell us: What’s your most surprising beauty fact?

pretty girl and I agree; if I’m not actually hopping in the shower, I wash my face immediately b/c I can’t relax at home with makeup on..I do tweeze but I’m actually letting them grow back b/c I went overboard lol

I find it really hard to believe those are her natural brows. Maybe if she tweezed/waxed a lot when she was younger and they quit growing in.

Well I think her natural blond looks great on her. The dark dye job was nice too but I love the natural color.

[…] Despite the rest of us wanting to look just like her, apparently Olivia Wilde thinks her naturally sparse eyebrows make her look like “some evil Disney queen.” [People] […]

When you start an article with “Why Olivia Wilde Doesn’t Tweeze Her Brows”, shouldn’t the logical conclusion start with “Because”? Also, I call bs on the ‘growing out’, clearly her brows are shaped in some way. Bottom line: What is the point to this nitwit piece?

If I had eye brows like that I wouldn’t tweeze either!

What is my most surprising beauty fact? That at the impending age of 47, I simply cannot go out of the house without a little concealer and some foundation anymore!! Bad surprise for anyone who encounters me without it…haha!

Guys, she didn’t say she’s never waxed or tweezed ever in her life. Just that she hasn’t done it in years. I actually have stopped waxing and tweezing my eyebrows too because they never grow back thick enough after waxing. However they’ve kept the shape I trained them into. Savvy?
